I love a book written in the first person. This technique allows me to easily identify with the main character, because I am "in her skin" and I only get information as she gets it. Also, this structure colors how I see the other characters in the book because I am seeing them through a subjective point of view. This technique is even more gratifying because Jobeth is so, so likeable.
While the plot starts off a bit flimsy (a guy hires a private investigator at a coffee shop simply because she is reading a book on the topic?), the relationship between Jobeth and Phoebe is a hoot. They are both very down to earth and I hate to use the word again, but they are two very likeable charachters. The overall character development is fabulous. Their relationship doesn't catapult from lust to love in twenty pages. You see them learn to trust each other and neither woman wants to change the other. I really love how Phoebe accepts Jobeth at face value and gives Jobeth time and room to grow. Their dialogue is so sharp and witty; it's easy to see why they fall for each other. The clever banter between the two of them makes for a quick and pleasurable read and the sex scenes aren't bad either. I can't wait to download the sequel and I plan on reading more from this author.
